The lambing is over and things have settled down to a dull roar....up early for bottle feeding the baby goats and milking Trinket and lamb races every morning when the little ones are let out from the barn....then repeat the process of feeding and milking and try to get the racing horde back into the barn at night....sometimes that's a trick! The between times are usually mad dash races throughout the pasture....something to behold! It brings a giggle to your soul!

I'm also getting anxious about our new rams! We will have a new katmoget ram to replace Sunapee and a beautiful black ram from Ridgeway Farm in Massachusetts. Their respective names are...Tucker and Xander. It will be fun planning this years breedings! We should have quite a few blacks and greys for next year, as well as lots of katmogets!! Tansy and Cappuchino are two of my ewes who are "kats"....can't wait to see what we will get out of Tansy! Cappuchino produced a beautiful katmoget ram for us this year.....maybe next year she'll give us a ewe!

Looking forward to the Sheep and Wool festival this weekend...pray for sunshine!!
